With a roof rack riding on top of your auto, it’s like having a second trunk. Unfortunately, that extra cargo area is suspended about 8’ in the air, and it can create a serious crick in your back when you’re hoisting up heavy gear. Boost yourself up with the Thule Step-Up Wheel Step, and make loading your rack easier, faster and pain-free.
Whether you’re securing your kayak or fishing out your skis, the heavy-duty Thule Step-Up Wheel Step gives you access to every inch of your roof rack. It mounts right to your tire using adjustable straps, and its no-slip surface gives you sure footing even in the snow and mud.
What’s more, the Thule Step Up Wheel Step folds flat and stores inside a handy carrying bag. Just tuck it under a seat or in your trunk, and it’ll always be ready for action. And, Thule backs your Step-Up Wheel Step with a Lifetime Warranty.

This step attachment is very secure and easy to use. I use to stand on top of the tire but have slipped of many times especially when the tire is wet. This will make loading the top carrier a lot easier.

This product performs as advertised...what else can a person ask now days? Due to its simplicity, the unit has performed well each time. It was shipped in a timely fashion and arrived unopened or dented. I would recommend this product and this company to my friends.
